Now we are going to get into the nitty-gritty of the process of forgiveness itself. It is one thing to know that you need to forgive. It is one thing to know that you want to forgive, but it is an entirely different thing to get to the point where you do forgive. The third and final step to forgiving others who have wronged us is reciprocation.
Who is to blame?
When relationships break--a spouse, a child or parent, a friend, a co-worker--the first thing we often look for is who to blame. But if we spend all of our time looking for the fault, we'll miss the opportunity to understand what went wrong and restore the relationship. All of us live with divides between people in our lives. Those who have let us down, or hurt us, or that we disagree with. And keeping distance takes time and energy.
God says there is a better way. We really can move past fixing the blame, and start fixing our relationships. In this teaching series, Lead Pastor James Merritt details practical principles from the Bible for mending the most broken of relationships.
